A complete copper alloy Stirrup-Strap Mount of Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian) date (AD 1000-1100). The object is sub-triangular in plan. The top of the mount is rounded and has a circular perforation within the centre of the upper projection. The plate is slightly concave to the front of the plate. The upper perforation is flanked by two knops around the edge of the stirrup-strap mount. From these knops the plate widens to a maximum width of 29.36mm which is marked by a second lower pair of rounded knops. Between the upper and lower knops the plate expands at a point which is equ…

To the reverse of the base a rectangular angled flange projects backwards at c. 90 degrees to the plane. The decorated face consists of a large zoomorphic head at the apex with looping and bifurcating tendrils on each side, below a hor…

Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete and abraded Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup-strap mount with the apex missing. There is no basal flange. Traces of rust lie behind one of the two lower fixing holes. Inlaid off-white material, presumably niello, stands proud of the surface. A crude whiskered animal mask within a frame is depicted. From the basal corners the sides slope inwards to rounded lobes (one larger than the other). The top comprises two concavities flanking a broken stump. The form is slightly reminiscent of William 1997 Class A, Type 5 and of a Class C, Group 2 mount from Buxton-with-Lammas, Norfolk…

An incomplete Late Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian)-Medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount (c. 1000-c. 1100 AD). Williams Class A, Type 5. The handle-like projection and the suspension loop are missing due to an old transverse break and part of the flange is missing. The complete stirrup mount would have consisted of a pentagonal, flat frame or body, set within a pair of tendril like shapes, down each diagonal side, which terminated in scrolls. Extending from the apex would have been a long, handle like extension, which would have probably terminated in a zoomorphic head t…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Medieval stirrup strap mount from the late 11th century. It is sub-triangular in shape. There is an integral loop at the top; at approximately the centre of the mount is a pair of off-centred lobes. The interior of the mount is decorated with four downward curving lines of indentations, which were most likely inlaid, now missing; the top three lines of indentations have three each, and the bottom line has four. There is some remaining red niello between the third and last line; this area appears to protrude from the mount, and may be a debased animal he…
